Linden Hills Depot

    Newer Older

    Owned and operated by the Minnesota Streetcar Museum, streetcars like TCRT 1300 run between Lake Calhoun and Lake Harriet along the Como-Harriet Streetcar Line. TCRT 1300 was originally built in 1908. This shot was taken at the Linden Hills Depot near the bandshell of Lake Harriet. The station is a recreation of the original station which was built here in 1900. It was closed in 1954 when streetcars stopped running. The new station opened in 1990.

    Linden Hills Station. Minneapolis, Minnesota.

      I totally agree! I haven't been on this streetcar line since I was little, but I just felt I had to at least get a photo of it. And it was the last one of the day... How lucky is that? Hehe.

      Glad you like it! :)

      The black box with clear plastic on top looks likes someone's microwave lunch. That's what it looks like to me (in the original size)

      The entire photo reminds me of a colorized photo from The Twilight Zone. A wonderful feeling of the grand old days.

      Thank you. That's one of the great things about Minneapolis. Even though it's a big city, there are peaceful places to go. And, the fall scenes are wonderful. All I do is point and shoot! The scenery does the work.

      Yeah, it kinda looks like a lunch box of some sort... Youre right. Now I just want to know what's in it! Hehe.

      I agree, a little more orange and red would created greater contrast and a more dramatic image.

    17. jpellgen 54 months ago | reply

      Thanks!
      For sure... I love fall oranges and reds.
